I'm having a good (and lucky day).
Earlier, I repeatedly bumbled in a game and was totally busted with seconds on my clock.
My opponent got disconnected and forfeited, so I won!
I only mention this because that game and this one helped me to reach my highest blitz rating ever at FICS (2102).
Here is the game that put me there:

Originally posted by robbie carrobieI popped in and out all day. I rarely have more than ten free minutes at a time lately. Sometimes I play a game log out, tend to the distraction, long back in a few minutes later, play again, get distracted again, etc. It's hard to concentrate with life going on around me.

Originally posted by ChessPraxisSorry ... I'm just now seeing this. (I'm getting ready to post a game.) I'm guessing I was black and we drew? I've dabbled with both sides of this, so I guess I could be white. The only reason I suspect that I was black is because of move 22, closing the hole.
